a busy time for president bill clinton. the global initiative annual meeting wraps up today. clinton's out on the campaign trail for president obama, and he still finds time to sit down with piers morgan. >>> six weeks until we choose a president and new information is out regarding the must-win state of ohio. mitt romney may be down but don't count him out. >>> and the future is now. google's been working on the driverless car. now one state is letting the internet giant test this prototype on city streets. prototype on city streets. "newsroom" starts now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> and good morning. thank you so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. this just in to the newsroom. another sign the economy could be improving. just released a report showing that sales of new homes jumped again in august. but let's quickly take a look at some of the other encouraging numbers that have recently come out. home prices in 20 major cities have gone up for the past three months. consumers are spending me. one example, 3% more spent on household goods compared to 2010. gas pr
iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president's speeches at the u.n. and the clinton global initiative put him on the stage. jessica, there was tough talk on iran. the president seemed to counter some of the remarks made by president ahmadinejad, who, for all intents and purposes, could be the last time he's in the united states as a member of the general alembssembassembly. what was the line the president took on iran? >> he took a tough line. this is an existential fight on israel. he said time is not unlimited for the world to stop iran from pursuing nuclear ambitions. weapons ambitions. he said that the u.s. will do what it must to stop it. another way of saying, indirectly, that all options are on the table. he's effectively taking the sam stance he gave earlier this year. but, he didn't go -- didn't go further and draw any red lines or new lines which is what the romney campaign was calling on him to do. it would be astonishing if he would do that at this stage, only for election purposes in a campaign season. i mean this is what you would expect a president to do. he
clinton was running for reelection, at this point in the campaign he was not at 44%. he was at 504%. that is that 10 percent difference president obama has so destroyed the confidence of his own party in an independence that he is lagging ten points behind where bill clinton was. he is in terrible political say and for reasons i will review here shortly he is going to get worse before it gets better. i personally believe that 44 percent is a ceiling, not a floor. that is, inflated. my friend, great assistant to richard nixon, ronald reagan speech writer and adviser has long argued that there is no such thing as a bradley effect. the bradley effect is named for mayor tom bradley of los angeles when he ran against george deukmejian did not do as well in the final balloting is he had been doing in the polling. for years pundits have ascribe that to the brad the affected people are free to say they're not going to vote for african-american because they don't want to be up to the prejudice he they're talking anonymously to pollsters. and he has all the data, and i believe him, but i bel
? in other words what is the administration trying to hide? secretary of state hillary clinton asked about this report as it began to develop last week. let's take a look at this. >> there is one report suggesting that ambassador stevens felt that he was on a qorkts al qaeda hit list. sf this a rumor? and is there something more to what he allegedly, i stress that order? as to the final question i have no information or reason to believe there is any basis for that. >> there, you have secretary clinton claiming she had no knowledge of the security concerns but she wanted you to believe this was not premeditated and the result of a spontaneous mob protesting a you tube video released in july. but in light of the handling of the situation i am not ready to take secretary clinton at her word ask a proven fact does exist the ambassador's warnings worried more while his family deserves to know the truth. not only that, they deserve better from the president himself. the last night the commander in chief had the nerve to liken in terrorist attack and vicious murder of four americans what he call
is the administration trying to hide? now secretary of state hillary clinton was asked about this report as it began to develop late last week. let's take a look at this. >> there's at least one report suggesting that ambassador stevens felt that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurilleyous rumor? >> i have absolutely no information or reason to believe that there's any basis for that. >> sean: there you have secretary clinton on record claiming she had no knowledge of ambassador stevens' security concerns, but also keep in mind she wanted you to believe that this assassination was not premeditated and was the result of a spontaneous mob protesting a youtube video which, by the way, was released in july. forgive me, in light of the administration's handling of the situation, i am not ready to take secretary clinton at her word, and prove in fact does exist that the ambassador's warnings were ignored by washington leading up to the attack, his family deserves to know the truth. not only that, they deserve better from the president himself, because last night the commander in chief ha
clinton, everyone has made clear they do not prefer that option, that they think that there's a need for diplomacy, but no one should make any mistake. if the time came and he had to make a choice between an iranian nuclear weapon and going after it, perhaps with u.s. military force, that he would do that, but clearly he's made clear he doesn't want to go there. >> very quick turnaround for you, elise and jessica yellin for you as well. just as the president wraps up his remarks. remember, the president has a busy day. he's going to be speaking at the clinton global initiative today, something that mitt romney did earlier on. we'll have coverage of that in a moment. you can also see it right here live on cnn in our noon hour, which brings me to this note. it's very important if you're heading out the door, you can still stay up to date on everything that's developing today. you can do this on your mobile phone or get it on your laptop. log on to cnn.com/tv. all the instructions are there for you. back after this. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in
include libya, iran, syria, and north korea. he will have remarks around noon eastern at the clinton global initiative. republican candidate mitt romney will speak first at the event, 9:00 a.m. this morning, live coverage on c-span 2. in the papers, all eyes focused on new york for the united nations gathering. we want to get your take on the united nations and global affairs. you can also send us a tweet. post your comments on facebook. or email us. let's start with the money. the united nations budget for its operations for 2012/2013. the breakdown like this -- let's look at peacekeeping efforts, that is a separate budget. this is all from the united nations web site and global solutions and reuters. the operational budget and the peacekeeping budget -- what you think the u.n.'s role is in global affairs? we will start with today's headlines -- here's the baltimore sun this morning with this headline -- we want to get your take this morning on the role of the un in global affairs. patrick is first in carnegie, pennsylvania, a democrat. good morning. caller: good morning. i think th
that, some people row mant size it, say the good old days of impeachment and clinton, when you say the way it used to, what do you mean? >> two things. first of all, 40, 50 years ago, members were reimbursed for one airplane flight home. and there weren't that many airplane flights. members spent time in washington. those that were close could go back home. others didn't. today, almost all members, except the old ones, go home every weekend, so there's less time in washington to do business here. that's not necessarily bad but it is one explanation why things don't get done. the other reason i believe has to do with the media. because there's now talk radio, so much cable television and other media coverage that has to be filled with something, a lot of it has to do with politics, and it is much more exciting to cover contests and controversies than legislation getting done. right after an election is over, we start talking about the next election and so instead of having about a year of time out where members get together and do legislation and business, you start immediately sett
to barack obama? >> call bill clinton every morning. >> how did bill clinton get to be such a major player in this election? >> bill clinton? >> yeah. >> one, he's a former democratic president. two, a former two-term democratic president, and also a president who led the country at a time of peace and prosperity. when he left office, only the sky was the limit to what this country could do. i bet you in bill clinton were a republican, mitt romney would have him in a bear hug and have him on the campaign trail with him every day. bill clinton is president obama's best surrogate out there. so that's why he's on everyone's lips. that's why he's everyone's best friend now it seems. >> you three were my best friends the last few minutes or so. thanks, guys. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> what would happen if a u.s. president did this? we're going to talk about israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his wiley b. coyote bomb warning about iran and all that. >>> tragedy at the office. why a gunman opened fire killing four people before turning the gun on himself. >>> also a possible motiv
. and as our story points out, he was a great communicator. >> also on the list, bill clinton, he made that big old splash in the dnc. why was his presidency such a success? >> i think it was him helping the democratic party. helping ending the motion of the a robust welfare state and really modernizing the democratic party and making it more business friendly. >> is there someone who this yale historian decided was the worst president? >> he did not ran rank the worst president of the last 100 years. >> but president obama made that cut, being the most recent. not only even that. i think he was a path breaking president, you look at health care reform. it it it's. >> okay, thank you so much. >> what it takes to prepare to moderate a presidential debate. former abc news news anchor joins us in the next hour with her experience. and the next. there's cash flow options from pnc. solutions to help businesses like yours accelerate receivables, manage payments, and help ensure access to credit. because we know how important cash flow is to reaching your goals. pnc bank. for the achiever in you. ther
had that line against hillary clinton. he said you are likeable enough, hillary. that basically cost number new hampshire. he has the lead but he has the most to lose. but he can't be too careful because if you are too careful you are not going to win. bill: when you consider colorado, those folks are dialed in on this election. here is martha. martha: no doubt governor romney wants to shore up the debate. the quinnipiac poll shows an 18% lead more the president or women likely voters. this same poll thinks the president will win the debate by a 2-1 margin. bill: how's that for expectations. stay with fox news, join bret and megyn and the fox news team live in colorado for a bit of analysis. all starts at 8:55 eastern time. so big night, i'm sure you will be there. martha: a fox news alert on disturbing new details on our attack on the consulate in libya. according to a report on the "wall street journal" the attack may have been launched by inmates freed from prison during the arab spring uprising. one militant in particular is worrisome to u.s. officials. who is that? >> reporter:
to bill clinton. bill clinton has a touch. >> everyone is aloof compared to bill clinton. >> exactly. >> let's talk about mitt romney. strengths, weakness. >> mitt romney's strength is that he is, comes across as competent, as a capable human being. as somebody who projects an air of authority, especially when he talks about the economy. that is the private sector track record. the flip side, the weakness is the 47%. some of the attacks he's taken in terms of that business record. i think mitt romney's biggest problem though, chris, is the sense people can't be sure exactly if he believes what he's saying. he needs to project authentic passion for what he believes his plan would do for the american economy to make the 47% lives better as well as the other 53. >> what do you think, e.j.? >> i thought the definitive line on politics, what you need is sincerity, if you can fake that, you can do anything. it's troublesome on this question of authenticate. what is authenticity? romney has taken a number of positions on issues which you will be sure obama will try to sneak in there somehow
? some people say yes including newt gingrich. >> hillary clinton is a serious problem. and barack obama is ambitious person. they are different. hillary clinton gets up every day thinking of public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about bark obama . very different approaches to life. i think those of us who are critics need to understand this is who is president. this is a man who in the age of false celebrity hood is a perfect president because he is a false president. he doesn't do the job. he said 39 percent of the briefings and intelligence, he goes to las vegas while there is an attack going on in benghazi. >> if you watch the president you notice he saw the foreign service that chris stevens our ambassador who murdered provided to the united nations and united states as well he talked glowingly of mr. stevens. it is odd that the day he was murdered mr. obama did the fund raising event on the day of the murder. >> brian: i thought it was interesting he said he was a christian and that was news to madonna who called him a black muslim. we are not sure. the speech was
that the president believes the libyan attack was an act of terror. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it seems to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign affairs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving sta
with president clinton, president ahmadinejad. i've had world leaders rolling in and out of here all week, stephanie. >> i'm sorry, say that again, piers? >> i said i've sat down this week with president clinton, with president ahmadinejad. with tony blair. i've had world leaders coming out of my ears this week. couldn't the president have found time to have met some of them or maybe even come on my show and met them? >> well, as i said, the president always makes time for world leaders. it's an ongoing thing. he talks to them all the time. it's not just about scheduling meetings in new york. it's about conversations and meetings all year long, as part of your full-time job. so no regrets about this past week, and you know, those conversations will continue. >> i'm sure we will be talking again soon. stephanie cutter, thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. >>> let's bring in my political all-stars now. republican strategist kellyanne conway and former michigan governor jennifer granholm. welcome to you both. wow, you're both in blazing red. >> republican red. >> this augers well for a
to marry free enterprise to foreign aid at the clinton global initiative. paul ryan finds an employee's union he can actually support. starting with the president. after the death of chris stevens. the anti-muslim video that provoked the protests while defending the right to free speech. >> obama: americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views. even views we profoundly disagree with. and on this, we must agree there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eliot: the president warned iran that while it still had time to demonstrate its nuclear program was peaceful, that time was not unlimited. >> obama: make no mistake a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> eliot: the president also spoke out against human tra
president was down nine points and died with bill clinton but october though clinton eventually won. former pollster questioning the assumption made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african-american, latino an young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> they said the public poll are varying in the sampling and methodology so it's hard to make the case when they point in one direction, they're all wrong. but we are planning for a close race as we always have. >> another democratic strategist offered this assessment. >> this isn't over. it can move back and forth three and four times between now and november 6. if i'm romney you try to create that momentum. he saw a sign to do it. >> of the eight presidential races in the past ten where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, the average was 5%. in some cases a debate moved the needle. bret? >> bret: thanks. today, missouri republican senate candidate todd akin confirmed he was arrested in pro-life demonstration 25 years ago and he is defending a comment that the democratic incom
education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on anff t bu a nuclear weapon. >> so let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe this is sll time and space to do so. but that time is not limited. make no mistake. a nuclear iran is a challenge that can be containe ut the president's strong words weren't enough to satisfied romney. >> we can look at the record of the last four years. is iran closer to a nuclear weapon or not? we know the answer. it's closer to a nuclear weapon. >> but one tng oband ro cee , just how much they love president bill clinton now. they tried to one-up each other, in fact, in praising the former president and his, of course, the annual global initiative conference. >> if there's one thi we've learned in this ectio seas, he, itew words from bill clinton can do a lot of good. all i've got to do now is to wait for a couple of days for the bou
bill clinton is playing a very active role in this campaign so how does he see things with just six weeks to go. >> norah o'donnell sat down with the former president and joins us live from new york. what did he have to say? plenty i would imagine. >> that's right. good morning to you, mike and andrea. you know bill clinton. he loves to talk and boy, did he tell us a lot as we sat down with him. he talked about the change he sees coming to washington. he talked about america's role overseas and he also talked about why he'd like to spend the rest of his life working for his wife. so, yes, some interesting news about hillary clinton. we're also going to talk this morning on cbs this morning about five years ago this retired f.b.i. agent disappeared in iran. what happened to him. charlie and i take that question directly to the president of iran. all that straight ahead when we see you right at 7:00. >> we will definitely be there. norah, just a heads up. your biggest fan here in the d.c. area is bragging about you on facebook. a gay named jeff-- >> guy named jeff. >> he has that new
's politics. just yterday at the clinton global itiative, both caidat appdhor president bill clinton. you often hear president obama talking about lincoln, mitt romney talking about ronald reagan, and now "newsweek" is out with a list of the ten best presidents since 1900. sir harold evans w is author offaus "the american century" has a tribute. it's a ploesh to have you here. >> thank you, madam. >> you gaekted together ten distinguished historians. what was the criteria? >> the cteriasha k o active presidents were they. it's very interesting. the historians, all -- every single one of them chose franklin roosevelt as number one. >> why? >> best predent since theodore roosevelt in the beginning of the century. if you ask tm why he did th asivnd effective, those two things. and he had a sense of america's ideal of itself. so they took those creria. they didn't know what the others were doing. they all voted a it's interesting the top three -- around the table and discussing this. >> no, no. it was all in isolation. they locked them in a room with an ice pack and 5,000 volumes of their own
, not as a progressive, which, by the way, is what obama is, a progressive, just like hillary clinton, who admitted she was. host: let's not go too far off the rails here. i understand that the constitution, the check and balances that the constitution refers to is between the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branch, and doesn't really mention the establishment of a two-party system. caller: you need a two-party system. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a complete representative, you know, in there that represents everyone and just not one side, like all progressives or all republicans, you don't have those checks and balances, whether it's the legislative, judicial, presidency, whatever. you need -- the bottom line -- you know, there's one problem on this whole thing. obama is not a politician. i mean, he cannot negotiate. reagan was in there. he had a democrat in congress, and he was able to negotiate like several people. obama can't do that. he goes out there
weapons soon. we have more from the u.n. >> reporter: secretary of ste hillary clinton's private meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu came after a tense day at the united nations. >> a red line should be drawn right here before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: netanyahu says iran has already completed the first says of -- stage of that process. they could complete the second phase by next summer. that would put it is months or weeks away from finishing its first nuclear bomb, a goal that must be stopped by a military strike if necessary. >> i feel iran will back down. >> reporter: his appeal for the deadline came a day after iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad addressed the u.n. he denies that iran is seeking to build nuclear weapons. the threat of a nuclear iran has been one of the main topics at this week's meeting of the general assembly. and all of that attention is apparently paying off. secretary clinton and the other permanent members of the security council discussed the matter thursday. a senior u.s.
and, in fact, perhaps too cautious. you've got hillary clinton going to, perhaps, a dozen meetings with foreign leaders and president obama already out of here in ohio, not meeting with any of the foreign leaders, do you think that they are playing it too safe by not meeting with president morsi, not meeting with netanyahu, avoided any pitfalls here in new york? >> well, maybe, but i heard bill clinton answer that question. he as always dispenses wisdom. the problem with meeting let's say netanyahu and the egyptian leader and libyan leader is you didn't meet with five or six other leaders. you've got to be all-in and meet with 15 or 16 or you just don't meet with any. and given the nature of the campaign, i mean if you look at prior presidents at this u.n. meeting, they didn't meet with any leaders either. >> well, i -- vin? >> governor rendell saying, president clinton is saying. on the other hand this is not just any moment. this is a moment of greatest foreign policy crisis in this administration. so for him to decide that the campaign is more important because he'd have to meet
. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would say, to may or june at the earliest to come up with a time where you feel like romney was controlling the narrative, controlling the tempo of this campaign. and then, you're right, didn't catch a break. it starts with the health care ruling at the end of june that somehow goes obama's way and then it marched through july, he takes a week off. a lot of people question that. then he ends up doing this overseas trip, as you point out. they blew their convention. blew an opportunity there. one thing about romney is he's had more experience going into a big debate behind than any other candidate at this point in time. i mean, he had this a couple of times. he needed a good debate performance to save himself in florida during the primary campaign. needed a good debate performance to save his campaign in 2002 in t
secretary of state hillary clinton to meet with him ahead and cancelled the so-called meeting. >> brian: i don't understand. i would think that the advantage is president of the united states. and go behind closed doors. he met with 13 leaderships last year. you get a general tone and go to the next room. you can look like he is in charge. he could go to a meet issue statements that he laid it on the line and he told people of tunisia and government of sudan and president of egypt this, this, this. i think that is more effective than any 30 second ad. >> gretchen: you can't trust the other leaders and that would create a news story and some sort of a story line he doesn't want right now. >> brian: yeah, henry indicated that, too. i don't think there is a mistake in showing leadership. we are used to other countries not arguing. >> steve: i see the other network newscast. last year he met with 13 world leaders and this year none because he is running for president and more concerned with the reelection than foreign policy. we told you yesterday he visited the ladies of the vieww . what did
. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilit probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often areurprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as re there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surpred by roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. hatlarge presidents w you e is what you get. iden yo
of state, hillary clinton asking how much her staff knew about the dangers at the consulate. yesterday, the state department announcedit had pulled out all personnel after the assault. >> catherine, you obtained state department letters about security at consulate. >>reporter: they were obligated by fox news and show the state department refused to get involved in a dispute between the security license holder in libya and the operations partner, blue mountain u.k. that trained and provided local guards. a source tells fox there is was a meeting in june and july and the libyan contractors said the security was "substandard and the situation was unworkable." when the libyans tried to bring in a third party, a state department contract office shut it down saying the us government is not required to mediate disagreements between the two parties of the blue mountain partnership. both must grow to change key personnel. the contract and conditions preclude subcontracting. this july letter also notes that the state department felt that the performance in benghazi was "adequate." >>trace: what
clinton ad 12 incidents that show security was unstable, unraveling and pleas for help were rejected. the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied the resources by officials in washington. >> what we saw was a pattern that made us question whether or not there was ever enough security and whether or not they heeded the warnings. >> committee chairman darrell issa is drawing attention to the r.p.g. attack in benghazi on june 11. >> the most disturbing was absolute attempt to assassinate the british ambassador that could have succeeded and obviously cast real questions on whether our ambassador was properly protected. >> briefing the state department spokesperson said secretary clinton would respond to the oversight committee today. adding -- >> yoit's fair to say we're still working through what we have in the building in terms of documentation, in terms of information, what we knew, who knew and when we knew it. >> reporter: the letters obtained exclusive by fox news appeared to confirm similar allegati
